of our eyes more violent change happening in syria. the reverberations felt in every one of those country's borders. elsewhere from beirut to bahrain, it's a low boil, ready to burst out in a way that would affect our interests in very fundamental ways. there's two problems at the far end of the threat spectrum. the iran nuclear challenge on one hand and spread of al-qaeda and spread of terrorism on the other that will continue to dominate unless we forget within a year of taking office, both presidents obama and bush, his predecessor, were faced with previously unforeseen events that fundamentally challengedded their middle east policies. 9/11 for president bush, and the arab spring for president obama. there's a lot on the agenda. today, we're going to take an early look at what will be and what should be the foreign policy of a second obama administration in the middle east. now, we, at the washington institute, for us, this is just the beginning of a -- of quite a number of events and an undertaking producing a series of transition issues on key issues, and research staff and by outsi
about this? you look what they did and the syria war, in which was they had in 2006, you never heard word one about it before they did it. why are they vocal about this? there's three reasons why they have been so vocal. one, it was designed to motivate the rest of the world, and i think, by the way, if you, you know, we know from our emphasis regarding the idea that the europeans would have adopted the sanctions they did like a boycott on iranian oil if they didn't they the alternative was they would strike voluntarily, and to think that would have happened without the israeli, quote, motivation," is not realistic. the second reason they do it is because they are getting the world ready not to be surprised. if diplomacy fails, and the third reason is to get the public ready. that reflecting their reality, but in answer to the question, we've, you know, you've -- we've not had conversations with others that i'm aware of that would deal with that, but i note for you that david cameron made statements saying, you know, also repeated the words "all options on the table," we want deploam

uncertainty with egypt, uncertainty on its border with jordan, civil war in syria, probl problems with hezbollah and lebanon. not to mention iran. there's no port in the storm. this is now the new middle east. >> and richard, doesn't that make syria all the more important, you know, golan heights took mortar fire from syria, israel really doesn't want to get involved. you know, spread itself thin in syria, and i think that's why international action on syria is so important right now. >> it's one of the fault lines in the middle east. i think if you're an israeli, it's not the one at the moment that keeps you up at night the most. >> right. >> i still think the palestinian is the closest. then you've got egypt which is the anchor of israel's security. and i think actually the israelis are most worried about jordan. the israelis are not central to the dynamic in syria. syria which began as a civil war and spread into the proxy has the potential to become a regional war. just when the thought the middle east can get worse, it can. >> what's your assessment of pretty much the fact th
of the drivers, although not an age when but one that is critical has been weapons coming into syria, including from russia. even this week the turks forced a plane to land. it was crossing in their airspace. allegedly carrying weapons for assad's government. how has the president we set with russia increased american influence in moscow? so that one would think the president could convince the russians to act differently. and then i would ask you, dov, to respond or to explain how governor romney in his approach to america's leadership in the world plate carefully so that america might have more influence in stopping the killing in syria? >> so, the reset with russia was simply taking a very clear guide approach and recognizing that you're going to have inches that you can cooperate on an interests were you see things very different way. in areas like arms control, reducing the nuclear danger, nuclear proliferation and, of course, want to cooperate with russia. in areas where the agreed to allow supplies to come through russian territory to support our troops in afghanistan, of course want to

like a straightforward issue in terms of intervening on syria, you only have five permanent members of the security council. and they cannot agree on something like this. you know, what has happened, obviously i think in the past couple decades, there's been an information revolution that has led to expectations that you articulated. in the gaza, it is live, in damascus, it is live. we have expectations for action. when we observe things like that, they are not seen it, there were not noted here our expectations are former limited. today, the public is globally connected and has certain expectations. and yet international institutions have not evolved in a powerful way. we still of the same institutions that have a political order since 2002. nobody can figure out how to do it. host: what is your relationship with benjamin netanyahu? guest: i do not have one. host: what about what is going on and syria, supplely into this current conflict? guest: it does. it does in two ways. in one way, it pushed syria off the front pages in the arab world. anytime you have a flare up on palestine,

to help the fodder in syria, speaking of president obama, placing patriot missiles around the region to take down president bashar al asad's air power as soon as the current missile barrages can be contained. through mr. obama's critics the root of the absence of american leverage in the middle east today is a light footprint that was simply too light. is that shared? you're on the ground. is there a sense that the americans have been not present enough in all of this? >> absolutely. and it's not only that they have been absent, also when they have been present, they haven't been present substantially in the way people in the region would like them to be. president obama came to cairo after he was elected, delivered a positive speech, very much welcomed in this part of the world to re-set relations between the u.s. and the muslim world and the arab world. one of the things that he said that the united states does not accept a legitimacy of israeli settlements in the west bank. here we are four years later settlements have expanded. in the eyes of the arab world this cuts deliver. at
, for instance, to syria and iran for real support. but recently, of course, hamas has broken from iran. its offices in syria have been shuttered, and it has become very close to egypt, which is now under the leadership of mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood. it also enjoys very close relations with qatar and turkey. so i followed these arab ministers around gaza today. they went to the shiffa hospital where many wounded are staying. and i spoke with several of them. many of them stressing one interesting point. that the arab spring has changed the way arab countries approach gaza. before countries like egypt were very wary of offending their american patrons and kept hamas at an arm's length. dealt with hamas, but it was well-known he did not like hamas at all, given its affiliations with the muslim brotherhood in egypt. some of these ministers telling me that they feel that the united states in this crisis has played a very passive role in trying to resolve this crisis. and what we're seeing is the emergence of other countries like turkey, egypt, qatar, in trying to address t
the situation in syria that is so violent and i think israel knows that it wants to be careful not to let this out of hand. and so maybe this three party, i agree with martin, this three-party agreement could be very important and maybe a sign that in his second term president obama is going to get more engaged in the peace process. there has been talk of sending president clinton as a mideast envoy. i thought that was an intriguing idea. but at least i think this is -- these are all very good signs for the situation. >> e.j., stay with us, and martin fletcher, thanks to you. i want to bring in senator chris koonce. senator, good morning. >> good morning 0, chris. >> the senate did unanimously pass that resolution standing by israel, something you co-response arored. what do you think hillary clinton brings to this now? >> well, i think secretary clinton moving to the middle east to stand by our most important ally, israel, is an important signal of our engagement to unanimous ly r reaffirm the right for self-defense and for us to support systems like iron dome which is made possible and

. they are surrounded by the north, by lebanon, and syria. jordan to the east and south of the west bank, which is palestinian territory. it's all the east of israel, and on the southwestern side is egypt where the new muslim brotherhood government supports the palestinians. israel has to keep its eye on all sides in what is considered a hostile region. cnn is right in the middle of the crisis. just hours ago our own fred plankton issued the shelling on the border between israel and gaza and got to see a reaction from israel live. he was speaking with carol costello when this happened just an hour ago. take a look. >> there's an interceptor missile taking place there. if you just saw the flash in the school, that was a rocket coming out of gaza that was just intercepted right now. it appears as though at this point many time there is another barrage being fired from gaza into this part of israel close to the israeli border, and as us just telling you, this town here on the border is one that does take a lot of fire very frequently. >> he is joining us live near the israeli gaza border. fred, ni
treaty. >> what about syria? there have been some incidents of fire coming into the israeli part of the golan heights from syria. what's the latest on that? >> our estimation is all the remotes events have to do with stray bullets or stray mortars. nothing more than that. it's an internal conflict inside syria. and that's the way we treat it. >> is it a serious situation on the golan heights right now with syria or is it a temporary thing? >> it's a temporary thing. the borders are quiet. we see it as an internal syrian conflict which has nothing to do with us. >> and you're on the lebanese border with hezbollah, that's quiet as well? >> it's quiet but tense. hezbollah has acquired a huge arsenal of over 60,000 rockets and tried to think how many other militaries in the world even hold these amount of rockets. a speech was given today urging all the arab countries to smuggle rockets into gaza so hamas can use them. >> one final question, iran. what if any role are they playing in all of this? >> iran is, i would say, pulling the strings in many of the terror organizations in the
have had a tense relationship since hamas supported the uprising in syria. what's that relationship and what's iran's role right now? >> absolutely. there are sectarian issues here. iran is predominantly shiite and hamas is predominantly sunni. the leader of hamas moved headquarters out of damascus and sided with the opposition. there is that real tension. in many ways, gaza reflects the kind of rivalry playing out in syria and elsewhere in the region. hamas relies on iran for military training and its most important weaponry, but there is this tension over syria. it's in syria's interest right now to see all the world's attention focused on gaza rather than on damascus to take some of the pressure off. these relationships in the region are shifting. part of what we're seeing, little gaza, it's important not just for what happens on israeli issues but the wider dynamics of the shifting sands across the middle east. >> let me ask you a question about what happens with hamas, depending how this plays out. there's one theory, dennis ross from the washington institute of near east polic
relationship with syria, its headquarters of its external leadership in damascus and most of its relationship with iran. i think there has been an effort by factions inside gaza, to try to pull ultimate decision-making, real power within the group -- and in order to do that, they started firing rockets to israel again and say we rule and we fight and we're the decisionmakers. you guys go and deal with our friends and get us money and support from the arab states, but that's -- >> so they're finding their political voice in many respects. earlier today piers morgan spoke with israeli president shimon peres. let's take a quick listen. one moment. >> we will work with the people of gaza to try not to make their lives difficult. gaza is open, the economic situation was improved and we don't know why all of a sudden they decided to shoot. >> so that was the president shimon peres. is that accurate portrayal? >> yeah, i think there is a lot of truth in what he said actually. i strongly disagreed with the characterization you just had from the spokeswoman, but i think that's not unfair. i think bet
unrest in syria, in iran, in the region generally, i think this. during this fight the united states needs to signal that we are going to be with israel and going to be a strong ally from the outset and throughout whatever difficulties may arise. martha: anyone who has watched the situation knows there has about in the past been tensions between benjamin netanyahu and president obama. is that perhaps why hillary is the one to go or is it too early for presidential involvement. >> i think it's too early. she is there to set the stage for things likely to come. we saw the president come out and issue a rather trapbg statemenstatement of support for israel. the increase in the amount of rocket fire coming from gaza, you had hillary clinton now set to meet with benjamin netanyahu, i think trying to do two things, basically, the first she wants to avoid a ground war. i think the united states government doesn't want to see this progress or escalate. second, i think she is trying to buy the united states a little wiggle room and flexibility when it comes to the bigger issue of iran and mi
of the posture of the white house. we have to take care of iran first. as syria goes, so goes iran. we missed one hell back of an opportunity in 2009 to bring that then you cut a deal with the palestinians. cheryl: thank you very much for standing by in helping us cover the breaking news. i do want to let our viewers know we are just seeing a release from the white house that president obama did call benjamin netanyahu to express his appreciation for the efforts to work with the new egyptian government to achieve a sustainable cease-fire. president obama did get on the phone with benjamin netanyahu of israel today. let's go and see how oil was affected by the breaking news. sandra smith, what are you looking at? sandra: there was an immediate reaction in the trading pits. we had been higher on the session, but, of course, oil plunged on this news. we saw oil hit the low of the session. $86.37 a barrel. that fella did not last on that news. now, it is right around 86.60. it is not being sustained. traders say it will take a lot more than that for that risk premium to be pulled out of the oil and g
into the occasion. >> right now iran has its hands full. it's got syria collapsing on one side t has hamas in trouble. so at a very simple, logistical level, this is more demands on iran for resupplying of weapons for political support of various kinds, but there is a broad idealogical game here where iran wins, because iran is seen as the great defender of the palestinians in the middle east these days. this is fas tid arritidiously s. in the political sense, iran is seen as one of the champions of the palestinians. >> will they still be seen as a champion if israel goes debacle and pushes hard against hamas or do they risk losing some of that cache? >> not really. i think everyone understands that israel is one of the most powerful in the middle east by far. it will do what it has to to run gaza. they say to the people of the arab world, we know you're supposed to fear us because we're the shia and you're sunnis and you're arab, but we are the greatest defender of the arab cause, which is the palestinian cause. and it works. go to cairo, to the shops of cairo, and you will see photograph
in the region. u.s. dealing with north korea, syria, iran. so this is part of the overall effort by the obama administration to continue pushing this refocus or this pivot is the word they like to use to asia. we saw last year, at the end of last year when the president did an asia trip and australia announced that u.s. troops, marines, would be going to that region. that was part of the defense component of this. they also see great benefits both domestically in the u.s. but also in this region. the president has talked about how trade in this region could lead to jobs at home. so these are some of the issues that the president will be addressing, but perhaps first and foremost we'll be talking about the push for democracy across the region and how thailand can play a role in that, victor. >> so myanmar is next. is that a bit controversial? >> reporter: well, it is. i mean this is a big moment because it's first time that a u.s. president has gone to myanmar, also known as burma. it is a country that has been closed until recently. about two years ago we've seen this sort of movement to refo

in the arab world. the question is can -- how does it play in syria? do iranians exploit it to their end? at the moment, if the grand troops can be restrained and netanyahu should be credited with responding to president obama on this there is some reason for optimism. >> shannon: all right. leigh it there on this topic. stick around, next up the director of national intelligence in the cross heirs over benghazi -- crosshairs oaf benghazi. black friday's here. do you think walmart can get you a great deal on the items you want? i don't know! let's go see. vizio 60" smart led for $688. that's a $310 savings. that is amazing! the first and only place to shop this black friday. savings start at 8pm thursday, more electronics at 10pm. walmart.

with syria and reach agreements with egypt, et cetera, with jordan. you can reach agreements with established governments. you can't reach agreements with gangs. >> but, anne marie, hoping that hamas goes away or is somehow weakeneds, that realistic? >> no, i don't think that the united states is not going to recognize hamas tomorrow, and obviously congress does prevent the administration from dealing directly with hamas, but, again, you know, actually, i don't see the people of gaza blaming hamas for their troubles. i see them blaming israel. i see hamas actually being strengthened, and in the end, you have to include gaza have both parts of the palestinians, that's exactly what qatar and egypt have been trying to do, bring hamas and fatah closer together. i think through egypt, they have to be represented. >> when you talk to people here in gaza about hamas, what do they say publicly, may be different than what they say privately. i appreciate you being on tonight. our coverage from gaza city continues. oh no, not a migraine now. try this... bayer? this isn't just a headache. trust me, this
of consequence. but now there are countries of equal importance, syria, egypt, iran, saudi arabia. everybody now has a big thing happening in their country. does that put more pressure now on the leaders of israel and the palestinians to come together and bang their heads together, get a deal done? >> i think so. the world focuses more on 130 palestinians killed, half of them terrorists, than 30,000 syrians, most of them civilians, killed by the assad government, and focus has been taken away from iran, which poses the greatest exstential threat, to the whole region this is a good time to sit down, try to negotiate what everybody knows would be the best solution for both parties it will not solve the hamas/gaza problem. but we can address the west bank problem. >> everybody seems to be nodding. a good moment to leave this for now. thank you, all, very much indeed. >> thank you. >> right back after a short break. ut they're gonna fall in , get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ] move to the country, and live a long, happy life together where they almost never fight about money.
